The developmental expression pattern of the gene corresponding to each cDNA sequence was inferred. The human orthologs of each cDNA sequence were used to infer developmental stage by week of gestation, year of age and life stage of human development. The number and percentage of genes with inferred expression in each stage is indicated in the second and third columns respectively.
